The Duke of Uke, London’s one and only ukulele shop and centerpiece of the London ukulele scene is under threat of permenant closure. This really would be a huge loss to the ukulele community!
You can read more about this news by clicking through to their website using the link below. You can also buy special edition 5th anniversary shirts that help to raise money towards keeping the store open. It would be a shame to see this place close as the UK is certainly lacking in specialist ukulele dealers with actual shopfronts, not just online stores.

Being a relative uke shopping newbie, I haven’t even had a chance to get into the great city to check this store out. I think it’s about time I scheduled a trip!
